Like/Thanks Button
« on: September 30, 2017, 04:48:51 PM »
Would it be possible to add a like/thanks button to posts? I've found a number of posts here where I want to give some recognition, but don't see the need to post a one word "Thanks".

Appreciate the consideration!

SMF 2.0 has a feature called Karma
Quote
Karma is a feature that shows the popularity of a member. Members, if allowed, can 'applaud' or 'smite' other members, which is how their popularity is calculated.
which (after discussion with the fellow admins a while back) we elected to not enable the feature.  We'd seen other boards where 'Applaud'/'Smite' and Karma scores created undue distractions in the overall environment and were more trouble than boon.

The other 'mods' to SMF would add Facebook integration (not something we want to do).

I suggest you do a short reply to posts you find either exceptionally helpful (or unhelpful) as you are so moved.  The Toast icon UU UU or Applause icon =D> =D>  are also available in a post.

Best regards,

Turns into a real mess and has destroyed more than one board.

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.
